Wonder what the odds are that the remaining 7 all pop. I must say I am extremely frustrated as I have never experienced such a high failure rate of seeds ordered before. I am going to write a letter along with the remaining seeds and send them back requesting fresh seeds or money back. Beware, I hope you have better luck than I have with Dr Greenthumb products.
I will update this thread at a later date if I hear from them. [The Rookie’s GUIDE] Most cannabis growers classify weed according to its shape and structure. As a result, you usually hear people talking about indicas, sativas, hybrids, and occasionally ruderalis cannabis. However, there are further categories defined by flavors, scents, tastes, and the region where the marijuana originated. In the modern era, Haze, Purple, and Kush are three of the most popular types. We answer questions such as, what is Kush marijuana? Kush strains are among the most popular in the world. They routinely scoop awards such as the prestigious High Times Cannabis Cup.
If you’re an experienced cannabis user, you’ve almost certainly sampled a Kush strain. Whether it is Purple Kush, Bubba Kush, Pure Kush, or the legendary OG Kush. Kush strains have ruled the indica-dominant hybrid scene for a while. Their heritage is traceable to the mountainous Hindu Kush region located along the border of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. To be precise, Hindu Kush is north of Jammu and Kashmir. At the time of writing, this is an India-controlled region, though this is a situation that Pakistan bitterly disputes. As well as giving birth to various marijuana strains, Hindu Kush is a volatile area synonymous with political turmoil. The Hindu Kush region is within the Himalayan mountain range. The fertile soil, deep valleys, and breath-taking hillsides are an ideal combination for marijuana growth. It is pure – meaning it has never crossed with any other strain and is grown in its natural environment. Thus, the cross-breeding of its genetics means you can be rewarded with stable and vigorous varieties. Every popular Kush variety you can think of, be it Bubba Kush or Cali Kush, can be traced back to the Hindu Kush strain. For example, Sensi Seeds created both Master Kush and OG Kush using the Hindu Kush strain. Other world-renowned strains such as White Widow and AK-47 are Hindu Kush’s ‘grandchildren.’ At this stage, it is getting to the point where the Hindu Kush strain will have more descendants than Genghis Khan! We owe a debt of gratitude to the legendary Hippie Trail for bringing Kush marijuana to Europe and the Americas. The Hippie Trail was a particular route taken by seekers of subculture during the 1960s and 70s. They went from Europe to Pakistan, India, and Nepal, and returned home with Hindu Kush seeds. The King of Afghanistan at the time, Mohammed Zahir Shah, was very much a ‘cannabis-friendly’ monarch. However, in 1973, he was overthrown by his first cousin, Mohammed Daoud Khan. Khan proceeded to outlaw weed after succumbing to pressure from the American President, Richard Nixon. After his assassination in April 1978, the country has been in a bloody civil war ever since. As a result, it became much harder to bring Hindu Kush seeds to America and Europe, but enough had already been transported to begin the ‘Kush Revolution.’ As indica strains, Kush marijuana varieties were significantly more versatile than the existing sativa strains. This versatility meant a complete change from the cannabis growing methods which existed at the time. Hindu Kush seeds had a significantly shorter flowering time than their sativa rivals. Therefore, breeders were able to grow more marijuana than ever before. Furthermore, the durability of Kush made it possible to cultivate it in cold regions such as British Columbia or Alaska.
So, what can you expect if you’re about to try some Kush cannabis for the first time? Kush Effects: Kush cannabis is firmly indica, which means you can expect a sedative experience. Strains such as OG Kush (and anything crossed with this legendary strain), typically provide you with an intense euphoric feeling. You’ll likely feel happy; however, you may remain fixed to your couch! Why you should choose an indica strain for these conditions. Some medicinal consumers say that they find it helps to temporarily alleviate the symptoms of insomnia, depression, and anxiety. However, you should not consume it before the evening, because it relaxes the whole body and results in couchlock. Kush marijuana is also associated with a smooth and rewarding smoking experience. Notable Kush Flavors Include: Grape Diesel Citrus Floral Earthy.
Prominent Kush Aromas: Floral Citrus Sweet fruit Herbal Pungent Pine Incense Hash spice Pepper Gas Herbs. When growing a Kush strain, expect it to show dark green colas and leaves, with the merest hint of purple. When it gets close to harvest time, the pistils of Kush weed turn bronze, orange, or even rust-colored.
